The most popular online poker tournament series of all time, MicroMillions, returns for a 12th time on July 17 at PokerStars. The micro-stakes online championship, which can boast of being the most highly partipated online poker series ever with more than 14 million tournament entries across its 11 previous championships, will take place from July 17-31.

The latest MicroMillions festival – the first since July 2015 – will feature 90 events. Buy-ins will range from $0.11 to $5.50, with the exception of the $22 Main Event, which will take place at 14.00 ET on July 31 and feature a $1 million guaranteed prize pool.

The new schedule will see six tournaments take place every day comprising five No Limit Hold’em (NLHE) tournaments at 05.00, 10.00, 12.00, 14.00 and 19.00 (all ET), and a daily ‘feature’ tournament, which will be a non-NLHE variant that takes place at 15.00 ET.

The full MicroMillions schedule can be viewed here:

Team PokerStars Online member, Kevin Martin, said: “MicroMillions is a really fun tournament series, and one I’ll be playing and Twitch-streaming over the next couple of weeks. For players who don’t have huge bankrolls and only have limited time to play poker, these fast-paced micro-stakes tournaments, which take place around the clock, offer a great opportunity to win large sums.”

In addition to the tournaments, players will be invited to compete for a total of $35,000 in prizes by completing MicroMillions Puzzles. To complete a ‘Puzzle’ players need to opt-in to the promotion via the Challenges window in the PokerStars client and complete various challenges to gain entry into several $5k and $15k All-In Shootouts, which will take place on August 1.

Players can also get involved in a Last Man Standing competition, which will award $1,000 to the player who cashes most days in a row starting from day one. A player must cash on day one to be eligible and their score stops once they fail to cash on a day.

If more than one player cashes every day of the series, and there is a tie for first place, the $1,000 will be split between those players. The latest standing can be seen in the Leaderboard Window in the client. See for more details.

Team PokerStars Online members will be playing MicroMillions and broadcasting their play on Twitch. Adrienne ‘talonchick’ Rowsome will provide streaming of some of the non-Hold’em events, while the Main Event final table is set to be hosted by Jaime Staples and Kevin Martin, with the duo commenting on the closing stages.
